First Day of 4-Year-Old Preschool

Today was Caden’s big day. He started his second year of preschool. Ever since Noah started last week, he’s been waiting for his chance to go to school. I’m pretty sure the main reason was so he could be with his best buddy Van, but I’d like to think he actually likes the actual school […]

First day of First Grade!

Noah is officially a first-grader now! He was so excited to go to school this morning.

This morning Noah had a little “graduation” at school. It was a lot of fun. Noah was lucky enough to have […]

He really is only 5 years old!

Noah’s tooth has been wiggling for a few weeks. I get grossed out really quickly when it comes to tooth/mouth-related stuff, so I’ve been avoiding messing with it. Every now and then I’d look over at him and it would be out of alignment which pretty much creeped me out.

Tonight, Andy and […]
